Tesla brings back unlimited free supercharging for the Tesla Model X and Tesla Model S.
BREAKING: All new Model S and Model X orders now come with ⚡ free ⚡ unlimited ⚡ Supercharging ⚡
— Tesla (@Tesla) August 3, 2019
Free unlimited supercharging has been on a rocky road over the last couple of years and was terminated last year. Back in 2018, Elon Musk said of free supercharging that it wasn’t sustainable as production volume grew, didn’t “incent optimal behavior” and should have been cancelled sooner.
The Tesla Model X and Model S have been struggling to reach their sales targets in the wake of the new Model 3, anticipation for the upcoming Porsche Taycan and the lack of any significant improvements or redesigns. Tesla is likely trying to encourage sales by adding free supercharging to the Model X and S offer.
